What are your weekend plans? We were hoping to host our Easter brunch outside, but looks like we’ll be getting some much needed rain on Sunday, so inside we go. I’m also making cream puffs for the first time, and really hoping that works out (accepting any tips or links to favorite recipes in the comments).

Somehow it’s been nearly a month since I posted weekend links, but I’m still here! Promise! Family visiting, then a bout of the flu, then I think I just forgot, then I had to make this glorious cake! Oh my gosh – this cake. I’ve made Momofuku Milk Bar‘s Cornflake Chocolate Chip Marshmallow Cookies before, and they are delicious, so I decided to tackle their Chocolate Chip Cake for my friend Kara‘s birthday (Happy Birthday Week Kara!). Buttermilk cake with mini chocolate chips, passion fruit curd, chocolate cookie crumbs, and coffee buttercream… it was everything I love about dessert. I was a bit skeptical about the naked cake thing at first (I LOVE frosting), but this cake was perfect, and being able to see all the layers like that was impressive. So, if you enjoy baking, and have a bit of time, I highly encourage one of Christina Tosi’s layer cakes… next on my list is the banana cake with chocolate and hazelnut…

What are you up to this weekend? Oscar party? I’m co-hosting a baby shower for one of my best friends, with two of my other best friends, which should be so much fun. It’s so fun to celebrate these life milestones, and to be supported by the people who love you most. It’s one of the things I cherish most about the time before my wedding, all that love from my family and friends, and when I was pregnant with Caroline, too. And it’s just as wonderful to be on the other side of it, celebrating a dear friend as she gets ready to become a mom!

So maybe I wasn’t able to quit Facebook entirely, but I am going to give this little experiment a try: see what happens when you stop liking things on Facebook? So far I’m enjoying leaving comments on friends’ posts where before I would have just hit “Like” – usually the person writes back, and it actually feels like I’m connecting, not just waving as we pass each other driving in opposite directions. Have you tried this? Did it change your Facebook experience?

So… I thought I’d see how things went if I deleted the Facebook app from my phone. You guys, I lasted less than 24 hours. That is pitiful. PITIFUL. Please, tell me it’s not just me. And if you’ve figured out how to break the Facebook habit, tell me your secret!
